On Saturday, Oct. 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Dress for Success Southern Nevada will hold its semi-annual, two-day “Shop for Success” excess inventory sale at the Opportunity Village Thrift Store, offering shoppers the opportunity to buy new and nearly new professional attire and accessories at significantly reduced prices.
New to the October sale is a partnership with Southwest Medical Associates, which will have a team present on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. offering complimentary wellness checks and health coaching for all shoppers. Southwest Medical further demonstrates its support by donating $5,000 to Dress for Success Southern Nevada.
“We are so grateful for Opportunity Village’s ongoing generosity and for once again allowing us to hold this event at their Thrift Store,” said Paula Lawrence, Executive Director for Dress for Success Southern Nevada. “The much-anticipated weekend continues to draw women across the Valley looking for professional attire available for a fraction of the original costs. We are excited to hold this sale in partnership with Opportunity Village as well as Southwest Medical. It is a great example of nonprofits and private business partners coming together to help our community.”
Shoppers will enjoy reduced prices on professional clothes for women at the sale, such as sweaters and blouses for only $6, jackets and dresses for only $10 and suits and coats for $20, as well as accessories like purses, scarves and jewelry. Cash or credit will be accepted. Back by popular demand, two special tents will be dedicated to just teen and high-end designer clothes. On Sunday, shoppers can buy a shopping bag for $25 and fill it with as many items as it will fit.
Dress for Success Southern Nevada holds Shop for Success sale events twice a year to reduce its inventory and make room at its boutique for new clothing donations.
